Vanderbilt University is now accepting applications for their summer 2019 NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering. The Vanderbilt Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) brings ten students each summer to campus to work closely with VINSE faculty on research projects in cutting edge areas of nanoscale science and engineering. Participation in the program provides students with a true interdisciplinary research experience in an environment where physicists, chemists, biologists, and all engineers collaboratively solve problems and create new scientific understanding. Weekly lunchtime meetings are held for all faculty and students that cover topics ranging from ethics and the responsible conduct of research to demystifying graduate school and the GRE examination. Each student works directly with VINSE faculty members and their research groups and has access to the VINSE laboratories, which are shared facilities available to all authorized users. For more information on this program click here!
The program dates for 2019 are May 26, 2019-August 2, 2019. The application for this program is due February 15, 2019.
